Hungarian Postal Service Issues Steve Jobs Commemorations




The Hungarian postal service, Magyar Posta, is issuing a commemorative sheet bearing Steve Jobs image. The sheet, which includes a perforated stamp-sized image of Steve Jobs, will sell for 1,000 forints (about $4.40).




From the Associated Press:
Quote:
The sheet includes a perforated portrait of Jobs, while an accompanying card shows silhouettes of some of the inventor's characteristic poses and a quote about Jobs by Erno Rubik, the Hungarian architect who created Rubik's Cube and other mechanical puzzles.
The sheet is strictly for commemoration however, and cannot be used as postage. 5,000 sheets will be sold starting in December from Magyar Posta's online store (Hungarian only).

Are all stamps that expensive in that country?

Competitors could never lick Steve Jobs, but now everyone can!

Just let the man rest in peace already!

Oh, wait. This in no way inhibits Jobs' ability to rest peacefully. Never mind.

I was thinking Mother Theresa.

It's interesting that there must be some process to select a picture to immortalize a person—I wonder how they decide on what age to use. It seems particularly relevant because Jobs' appearance changed so much over a recent period of time, and his appearance toward the end of his life is now being made as iconic as the earlier images of him in suspenders holding an apple, with that gorgeous, shiny hair. Not saying good or bad, just something I think about. I think a stamp of the young Jobs holding an apple could be nice, too.

an "A" for effort but a "D" for nice try...

While a commemorative stamp of Steve Jobs is an awesome idea and gesture, they surely could have made a better depiction of him, as either young or old.

That's the cost to send a letter in countries over the world.

That's why I have a nice little chuckle when people here in the US complain about the price of stamps going up 1 or 2 cents. They have no idea...

Perhaps those great older photos wouldn't resonate with younger people who didn't know of him (or pay much attention to him) then.

Like most Apple products, no instructions are required. Sad Apple devotees who will buy this already know to lick the backside.

How do you come up with these witty and insightful jokes? It must take hours!

A friend of mine studying at the University of Philadelphia was once asked where she's from due to her accent. She answered 'I'm from Poland'. The American gave her another question 'What state is that in?'

Makes me laugh every time.

It's not the most flattering picture they could have picked; it's actually kind of comical. I like it

I was in Paris about 10 years ago. Talking to a guy at a local market.
"Where are you from?" He asks me
"Sydney, Australia" l reply
"Oh, l'm driving there next week"

French people are known to be really bad at english. I can see people who are not terrific at english saying "drive" instead of "going" or so when under pressure. And for some, pressure can mean even having to speak the language to someone else.

I really wish they wouldn't honor people with pictures of them at the end of their life if they died of cancer or some other disease that decimates their appearance. I'm guessing that Steve told Apple to try and not use any pictures post-2007 when they honored or referenced him.

Expensive stamps. But I'm sure they'll be popular all the same.
